This is a finished page to store seeds in. Read on to find out how easy it is to make.

Step 1: My old system

It wasn't much of a system. The "shoebox" method of storing seed packets can become untidy. You need to sort through all the packets to find what you want. By sewing pockets in clear plastic A4 or US Letter sleeves and putting them in a ring binder it is easy to find the seeds you need.
Thank you for sharing! I am currently also using the shoebox storage system. At first it was quite neat because all the packets are stored together in one place and they don't get messy. However, after a while, many more packets get accumulated and they all get cramped up together and looks disorganized. I have since used this new storage book system and I love it! My son loves it too as he uses it for his soccer playcards.
I think you can even buy the plastic sleeves pre-sown (to be used for photo storage) <br>
Great tip, they might even be a little stronger.
Does it only work for Kings Seeds? Not that it matters, most of mine come from the same supplier! <br>For a newbie gardener like me it would also be a good place to add instructions for the seeds too. <br>You could always reinforce with duct tape if need be.
That's funny. I mostly use Kings Seeds as they are a New Zealand mail order company with a good range of seeds, good prices and good service but I do have some other bigger seed packets which also fit in the sleeve pockets.
Brilliant solution. Very clever!
Thank you.
I was struggling with this problem yesterday! Excellent timing.
Until I put the clothespins on the tops I was thinking I needed to use a plastic box but I really like the ease of finding particular seeds. I hope it works for you, post a photo.
Very nice -I can use this for some other items that are hard to sort. Any tips on what type of plastic holds up well...tips on sewing - I image the longest length stiches...seems tricky?
Thanks. <br>I used plastic sleeves sold in office supply stores. The book won't be stored outside so they should hold up. I sewed with red thread so I could see what I was doing and used the longest length so it wouldn't tear the plastic. So far, so good.
